Home learning – 29.9.17
In Year 1, children will be doing lots of phonics work to help them with their spellings. They will also be learning to spell Common Exception Words (sometimes called tricky words). These are words commonly found in the English language which do not follow the phonic rules that have been taught so far.
Please help your child learn to spell the words that have been sent home this week. We will be giving you a new list of spellings each week to practise at home.
The spellings for this week are:
the, do, to, today, said

The Home Learning for Year One this week is to create a special memory box. We are asking children to bring in a box which includes a photo of them as a baby and something that is special to them. E.g. an old favourite toy or book that they enjoyed when they were younger.
Your child can bring in their memory box by Tuesday 26th September 2017. The children will share their special memory box with the class and discuss changes during our History session.
Please ensure not to send in anything that is too delicate or valuable.
On Wednesday 5th July, the children (and adults!) enjoyed a visit from Tommy, a trained musician from Rock Steady Music School.
Tommy taught the children all about the electric guitar, electric drums and electric keyboard. He played each instrument while the children screamed, sang and clapped along.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed rocking out with Tommy and if your child has been inspired by this experience we hope you take advantage of any future opportunities involving Rock Steady at our school.
On Thursday 2nd March 2017 everyone at Gordon Primary School will be celebrating World Book Day. We are asking the children to think about their favourite book and dress up as a character from it. Year One’s Home Learning is to begin to plan and make a costume that they can wear to school on World Book Day. There is no need to buy props or a costume, it is far more fun to make them at home.
As part of Year One’s topic ‘Tiaras, Turrets and Tales’ the children are making an eye mask for Sleeping Beauty. Next week the children will be sewing. If you would like to join us and support the children as they learn to sew with a needle and thread we will would be very grateful for your help.
1ED- Tuesday 31st January from 10am.
1EP- Friday the 3rd February from 10am.
Please let a Year One staff member know if you are able to come into class to help the children.
The Home Learning for Year One this week is to look around your home for fabric that you could use to make an eye mask. Your child can bring in their fabric on Monday 30th January.

This week we have looked at lots of paintings of dreams. Your Home Learning is to keep a dream diary. You could write about the dreams you remember, or you could draw or paint them. We will talk about our dreams on Friday 27th January.
Welcome to Year One.
The home learning this week is to read the book that your child has taken home. Talk about the story. What happened? How did the characters feel? You could also take your child to a local library so that they can choose another book to enjoy.
